Kedves, Ellison face challenging B.C. and Yukon region skaters
Two Fuller Lake Skating Club members were the lone valley representatives in the B.C.-Yukon Skate Canada sectional championships in Parksville.
Sarah Kedves, a Grade 7 student at Davis Road School in Ladysmith, and Marina Ellison, a Grade 9 Frances Kelsey student, held their own against stiff competition from the top skaters in their age groups.
Kedves was 12th out of 15 in Juvenile Under 14 Group One and finished 20th out of 30 overall.
Ellison placed 35th out of 54 in one big group for Pre-novice.
Kedves went up against girls as old as Grade 9. She received a personal best for highest technical scores.
Ellison’s group consisted of 13- to 16-year-olds.
It was a great experience for the girls. Their skates were streamed live around the world.
